Researchers at +Northwestern University have developed a model that could give computers the ability to reason more like humans and even make moral decisions.

“In terms of thinking like humans, analogies are where it’s at. Humans use relational statements fluidly to describe things, solve problems, indicate causality, and weigh moral dilemmas.” Professor Ken Forbus +Northwestern Engineering

The research is supported by AFOSR PO: LtCol Brian Lutz #BasicResearch   #ComputerScience   #ElectricalEngineering   #InformationScience   #Analogies
